Top 5 Things to See & Do in Whitby

Whitby Harbour

Whitby is famous for many things: it's a traditional seaside resort with Blue Flag beaches, and has some of the best fish and chips around. But there's so much more to it...

Born in Marton, as a young man explorer Captain James Cook lodged in a house on Whitby's Grape Lane during his seaman's apprenticeship. That very same house is now a fascinating museum dedicated to him, packed with stunning artifacts.

Kippered

Near the foot of the 199 steps leading to Whitby Abbey, you'll find a true Whitby institution. Fortune's Smokehouse, established in 1872. You'll struggle to find more delicious kippers anywhere, not to mention that they're award-winning! Kippers Whitby

It's Quicker By Rail...

A train journey over the magnificent North York Moors is an experience to remember - hop aboard the Esk Valley line, or the steam-powered North Yorkshire Moors Railway at Whitby Station.

Explore Winding Street and the famous hidden yards guided by one of Whitby Walks costumed 'Storywalkers'. Most of the walk start/finish from the famous Whalebone Arch.

Jet Set

Whitby jet - the 'black amber of the north' - has always been considered the best in the world. Take a walk up Church Street to browse the many jet shops, including W. Hammond and the Whitby Jet Heritage Centre, which has the last remaining authentic Victorian jet workshop.
